New rules for youth employment.

Students aged from 18 up to 24 will be able to work for a maximum of 10 hours per day under a special contract. While working, students will continue to be entitled to social and student benefits such as student scholarships, and their parents will continue to pay their health insurance until they reach 24. The salary payable to students will not be considered as income for social security purposes.

The amendment to the Labour Code that implements the new rules has been adopted by the Senate and Chamber of Deputies.

The new rules will come into effect on 1 September 2019.
